Intelligent IoT Projects in 7 Days

By: Agus Kurniawan

Overview of this book

Intelligent IoT Projects in 7 days is about creating smart IoT projects in just 7 days. This book will help you to overcome the challenge of analyzing data from physical devices. This book aims to help you put together some of the most exciting IoT projects in a short span of time. You'll be able to use these in achieving or automating everyday tasks—one project per day. We will start with a simple smart gardening system and move on to a smart parking system, and then we will make our own vending machine, a smart digital advertising dashboard, a smart speaker machine, an autonomous fire fighter robot, and finally look at a multi-robot cooperation using swarm intelligence

Learning about swarm intelligence

Swarm intelligence is inspired by the collective behavior of social animal colonies such as ants, birds, wasps, and honey bees. These animals work together to achieve a common goal.

Swarm intelligence phenomena can be found in our environment. You can see swarm intelligence in deep-sea animals, shown in the following image of a school of fish in formation that was captured by a photographer in Cabo Pulmo:

Using information from swarm intelligence studies, swarm intelligence is applied to coordinate among autonomous robots. Each robot can be described as a self-organization system. Each one negotiates with the others on how to achieve the goal.

There are various algorithms to implement swarm intelligence. I recommend you read textbooks about it. Some math and statistics are applied for implementing...
